I feel like Saint's Row tries to be goofy for the sake of goofy but the writing of the series is not even close to GTA or Rockstar in actual humor. I'm wondering when Rockstar will release this because it could be six months or sixteen months knowing Rockstar.
Well, I half agree with this. The physics in GTA4 are hilarious, and it was actually more satisfying to drive those cars than the ones in SR.
But... SR2 is still pretty good. The character creator is pretty amazing, and The Boss at least is a character who you could see doing all these random acts of violence. The recent trend of GTA protagonists who are decent guys and just keep getting swept up in shit makes no sense when you're still killing dozens of people every mission and running down civilians. This is why the writing of GTA can't really be praised. Most people would be hard pressed to describe what the actual 'plot' of GTA4 is.
This is also why Tommy Vercetti was the best, because he was just a sociopath.
